School Social Workers

  • School Social Workers specialize in providing an array of services to students and their families to address and eliminate barriers that affect students’ academic success in school. School social workers are the link between the home, school and community by providing direct and indirect services to support students’ academic and social success. School social workers promote student success by addressing issues related to attendance, homeless education, child abuse and neglect, and coping with crisis situations (i.e. behavioral, economic or familial).
